Data Cap Issues and Video Streaming in Longview

Data collected by our researchers shows that many of the popular providers in the area place a limit on data use for their residential Internet plans. Data caps are controversial because customers view caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting". Providers insist that they are a reasonable strategy as they struggle to manage network traffic. In either case, the culprit is the same: over-the-top streaming, which easily consumes one to seven Gigabytes/hr.
